Are you feeling like this dried-up creek bed when it comes to trying to get to, or stay at, a “healthy” weight? Have all the negative, restrictive and demanding rules sucked the life out of you?
Since before I began blogging over two years ago, I have wanted to write about this. There is so much confusion about how to get to and maintain a healthy weight. There are so many health-damaging diets, weight-loss pills, books, magazines and even “experts” out there that women are bombarded with bad information, myths and even, sometimes, lies.
Seeing women who are struggling to get to, or stay at, a healthy weight is something that has made me passionate about helping us all get to our best level of health. For many, that would include losing weight, but for other ladies, like myself, that means getting healthy, fit and strong and maintaining something near my current weight.
Before you give up on reading what I have to say because I’m not needing to lose a ton of weight, hear me out. If I were still eating and living the way I was 10 years ago, I’d have a ton of excess weight to lose. I learned what to eat, how to eat it and so much more and that has helped me to stay at a healthy weight. I’ve had two babies (over 9 1/2 pounds, each!) and I understand that pregnancy and birth change our bodies. Think of it this way: If you want to learn about herbal remedies, you ask somebody who successfully uses herbs, right? Well, I’m in my 30’s, have had two really big babies and I’m in a size 6 top and size 6-8 pants. And folks, I EAT! I love good food and I am not shy about enjoying it! 😉
I’m certainly not a supermodel, but I’ve learned how to maintain a healthy weight. I am also on a journey towards regaining my health, because I’ve had some nagging fatigue since having mono years ago (not good for being able to exercise and I certainly do not have a high metabolism- I’m almost always cold). I’d like to bust some of those myths about what a “healthy” weight is and how to get and stay there and this won’t be the standard, “Just eat less and exercise more” line that doesn’t help. I’d also like to invite you to join me in making daily decisions that will get us each to our healthiest body possible!
How about it?? Do you need to make some changes to get healthy, either in the weight department or in other areas? Let’s have some fun getting healthy and enjoy feeling good! Comment below so that we can all encourage and support each other! 🙂
